Shelves: audible , france , classics , read , hf , love My thoughts a bit into the book: THIS is fantastic! What lines! Did you know that Remarque died in ? Here the year is Interesting and exciting and marvelously written. And you want to know why the main character is as he is.

Through Ravic you see the consequences of history on an individual. I came to understand Ravic. There is another central character - Joan, who he falls in love with.

Joan is another completely different story and I felt the book did not explain as well why she was who she was. This is why my appreciation of the book was less than magnificent. Really gorgeous writing. Remarque draws Paris superbly, Paris and how it looks and smells and the tension of those times. You follow the events of history through the life of Ravic, his one year hidden in France. The narration by Ralph Cosham is totally fantastic.

It was never too exaggerated to increase tension, but boy does it mount. The excellence of the narration was a total surprise for me since when I listened to the sample I thought it would be way too old-fashioned. No, it was just perfect. And the voices of the women were perfect too. Smooth, calm, pitch-perfect! I loved the narration, and I highly recommend listening to this book rather than reading a paper copy.

And the ending?

It fit; it ended as it had to end given Ravic's character and what he had lived through. View all 9 comments. Trebala bi postojati neka kategorija za knjige koje su poput ove- van kategorije Bila i ostala jedna od mojih omiljenih knjiga svih vremena.. Apr 18, Agnes rated it it was amazing.

One of my favorite books. Remarque at it's best. This book transforms you back in time to post war Paris. You can small the dusty streets, cigars and Calvados in the air when you read it.

It will leave you nostalgic and hungry for true love and romance straight from the vintage 30s. Jun 24, Al rated it really liked it. Remarque has a great humanistic way to tell a simple story, while inspiring a greater idea or a state of mind.

While Arch of Triumph is definitely mainly a love story between German refuge Ravic, and wannabe actress Joan Madou, it is also a dooming testament to the injustices of life. And it is also a stark witness to the tragedy of war, and the dark human instincts that precipitate it. Being a strong pacifist, Remarque, who served in World War I, tries once again to present not only the useless Remarque has a great humanistic way to tell a simple story, while inspiring a greater idea or a state of mind.

Being a strong pacifist, Remarque, who served in World War I, tries once again to present not only the uselessness of war, but its inevitability too. I really liked the characters in this one, which are mainly Ravic and Joan, since the plot is so centered on the love story.

They felt so close to me, and even if Joan is made to look artificial at times, I could almost feel her inner instinct to charm and seduce, while posing off as innocent at the same time. But at the end, those people are just caught up in the turmoil of their times, trying their best to adapt and live their lifes.

Arch Of Triumph

And be it the boy with the cut leg, or the American Kate who has incurable cancer, life keeps beating them up, but they never give up. Because the Arch of Triumph stands at the end, sometimes gloomy, but always magnificent.

Arch of Triumph: A Novel of a Man Without a Country by Erich Maria Remarque

The darkness of nights mask the arrival of refugees from Germany to hotel rooms and abandoned flats by Parisians reading the headlines warning of a second catastrophe in just twenty years.

The suspense is palpable as Ravic's existence as an undocumented surgeon builds. This story like Remarque's "All Quite on the Western Front" tells the cautionary tale of the costs of war to the lives of human beings. As normality becomes unrecognizable, choices evaporate, what is left of the spirit? Who will hold to their own values under maximum stress?

I especially was drawn to the author's simple, direct phrasing of the story in contrast to the complexity of the circumstances of war. Highly Recommended Nov 09, Ellen rated it it was ok. I put this book aside to read A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains but I was already getting tired of it and I'm not in the mood to finish it right now. He had been a surgeon in Germany but as he is living illegally without papers, he has to take whatever work a few French doctors give him work that they don't want to do such as trying to save a woman's life after a botched abortion.

I found this all very I put this book aside to read A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains but I was already getting tired of it and I'm not in the mood to finish it right now.

I found this all very interesting, how he had to live a solitary life, on the fringe and under the radar. Then he falls in love and its just blah blah blah about what love really is and can we ever really be happy and who is going to leave the other one firt. I know Remarque is well regarded All Quiet On The Western Front and I feel a bit like "who am I to criticize" but these two characters just went round and round in circles and I lost interest.

Apr 01, Jonnu rated it it was amazing. I'm just going to say that 'til now this is my favourite book of all times.. May 29, Rick Slane rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Paris is always popular. The prose in this translation is often poetic. WWII is looming and almost everyone knows it. A great deal of alcohol is consumed.

Aug 16, Lora Grigorova rated it it was amazing. In a world where nothing is right, where humanity has continued on the path Arch of Triumph: Even on the verge of a second World War, people are still fighting the same problems — hatred, jealousy, envy — and people are still able to love — completely, selflessly, passionately. A certain disillusionment hovers in the air; the exiles leave by habit, surviving every day as if it might be their last.

One of these nameless, faceless souls is Ravic, a German doctor hiding in Paris. Fascism has taken everything from him — his home, his practice, his passport, his identity, his belief, and even his ability to love. Arch of Triumph is a story of the difficult path of spiritual, moral and physical preservation in a world of political persecution and uncertainty of what tomorrow might bring.

It is very old and still it touches on some things that are universal and beyond restraints such as time. It's set in the illegal refugee community in Paris during the second world war, and the protagonist is a not too sympathetic doctor, who practises illegally for pittances, drinks himself down more or less every night because of his insomnia, has casual relationships when he doesn't play chess with a Russian refugee friend of his, has countless political discuss I was blown away by this book.

It's set in the illegal refugee community in Paris during the second world war, and the protagonist is a not too sympathetic doctor, who practises illegally for pittances, drinks himself down more or less every night because of his insomnia, has casual relationships when he doesn't play chess with a Russian refugee friend of his, has countless political discussions and can't seem to stop thinking about all the really big issues of life.

As a black cloud over the illegal community is the ever-present risk of getting found out and deported to Nazi Germany, torture and death. I don't know what happened to Remarque when he wrote this book, because it far, far better than anything else I have read by him. Laura, Wanda.

Now for the Film with Anthony Hopkins: Bettie's Books. Dec 17, S. Rediscovering the books that I read when I was too young. Read in 2 nights. One of my favourite books definitely. It was like I could almost feel how the author felt when he was writing it. Everything is so complicated and yet brought to us so simply.

Arch of triumph

Must read. Aug 05, Mariya rated it it was amazing Shelves: Reading this novel was devastating, heartbreaking, and heartwarming. It's now one of my treasured books. Jan 23, Olesya Razuvayevskaya rated it it was amazing Shelves: This novel has it all, all the attributes one can expect from Remarque's novels: One way or the other, she must die, little suspense here. But every single time, it is somehow fresh and catchy, not sure how he does it!

Kompletna knjiga. View all 3 comments. Readers also enjoyed. About Erich Maria Remarque. Erich Maria Remarque.

Erich Maria Remarque pen name of Erich Paul Remark is one of the best known and most widely read authors of German literature in the twentieth century. Remarque's biography is essentially marked and his writing fundamentally influenced by German history of the twentieth century: Is it just revenge or is it his duty to shoulder punishment of crimes committed?

Doesn't each and every one of us have to share the burden of retribution? This theme turns the book into a crime novel and the tension mounts as you reach the end. Another central theme is how war forever alters those who living through them.

Ravic took part in the Spanish Civil War too. The book is NOT about war experiences per se but rather about their personal consequences, and the larger perspective of the many who lived through the 20th Century. Through Ravic you see the consequences of history on an individual. I came to understand Ravic. There is another central character - Joan, who he falls in love with. Joan is another completely different story and I felt the book did not explain as well why she was who she was.
